The latest series in the Mad Men franchise is absolute perfection. Following on from where the last left off, we see Don, Roger, Bert, Lane, Peter and the gang embark upon their own agency, winning and losing accounts as we witness the times-a-changing in sixties America. Don's family life is as complicated as ever, Peggy is still wrestling for some respect and recognition and Joan is dealing with home and work issues. As always, the script is as tight as a banjo string, the plotlines are well-rounded, the detail insanely intricate, and the entire premise is so expertly executed that it's easy to imagine Mad Men as one of those series that survives the test of time; remembered as outstanding television in ten or twenty years. An easy five star decision and not to disappoint anyone - be it fans or newcomers to the series (but you must start from Series 1 to follow the character and story arcs).
Matthew Weiner (the creator) has been signed for three more series which is absolute music to my ears.
